How to Navigate Directors’ Accountabilities in a Digital Era with the IOD

In Blog, Business News, Events, Knowledge on

Net-Defence has partnered with the IOD and leading law firm Burness Paull to deliver workshops on how to navigate Directors’ Accountabilities in a digital era. Many boards are finding it a challenge to effectively deliver regular Directors education on all aspects of asset, data and people protection and navigate their risk management and compliance duties as technology and innovation continues to develop at a rapid pace. These Directors’ Accountabilities workshops have been designed to enable individual Board Directors to stay informed, reduce personal risk and enable them to deliver effectively on their Directors duties when is comes to digital impact on running a business.

The IOD (Institute of Directors) has been engaged with the government’s consultation on digital strategy for a future proofed economy for some time.

There is no question that internet technology – and digital communication innovation more generally – will allow economies across the world to rapidly catch up with digital leaders, far quicker than would be the case with manufacturing.

The first workshop which will run in Edinburgh in November will explore new legal accountabilities and fiduciary obligations on Directors as well as Directors’ personal liabilities.

This workshop will

  • Take individual Board Directors through clarity on changes at the ICO which result in greater accountabilities of individual Directors and new legal accountabilities
  • Educate and inform on myths and misunderstandings that are resulting in ICO fines
  • Equip Directors with knowledge to evaluate if IT and Marketing teams are fully informed and compliant
  • Enable Directors to better assess risk levels for you and your organisation in the future

The workshop is open to IOD members with preferred rates, and non IOD members. You can book directly with the IOD here.
